Somewhere a Band Is Playing

Early Drafts and Final Novella
An omnibus of novels by

SOMEWHERE A BAND IS PLAYING is a new novella by Ray Bradbury which he has been toying with for 50 years, and is possibly Bradbury's best piece of long fiction since Fahrenheit 451 and Something This Way Comes.

Reporter James Cardiff is drawn to a town that wasn't on the map. There was a story to be told. Summerton was paradise...or pretty close to it. Delicious food and wine. Sweet air to breathe. Lush green beautiful lawns. And, good company. But something didn't sit right with Cardiff. There were no children to be seen. No baseball bats, no basketball hoops, and an abandoned school. There were no doctors and a most unusual cemetery, as well. And then there was Nef. Both beautiful and alluring, Neff knew things about Cardiff she simply couldn't. Yes, in Summerton there was the smell of mystery, some hidden secret in the air. But, if Cardiff sniffed out the story and, worse, wrote it for all to read would the consequences be worth the telling of a good tale? Edited by Donn Albright, the Gauntlet edition of SOMEWHERE A BAND IS PLAYING will contain segments Bradbury wrote which he never finished, the beginnings of a script he never finished, plus the completed manuscript. Also, William F. Nolan adds an insightful introduction. The book is SIGNED by Ray Bradbury and is limited to 500 copies.
